Nice! We just learned our buddies at Scream Factory will unleash Stephen King’s Graveyard Shift on Blu-ray on July 28th. Extras are in progress and will be announced at a later date.
The film is based on the short story by King which was eventually collected in King’s Night Shift.
Rated R for adult situations/language, nudity, violence, the movie centers on a drifter who wanders into a small town in Maine. He needs a job and decides to seek employment at the community’s top business: a large textile mill. He is hired to work the “graveyard shift” — from around midnight to dawn — and, along with a few others, he is charged with cleaning out the basement. This task strikes the workers as simple enough, but then, as they proceed deeper underground, they encounter an unspeakable monstrosity intent on devouring them all.
It was directed by Ralph S. Singleton from a screenplay by John Esposito based on the short story by Stephen King. Singleton produced with William J. Dunn. It stars David Andrews, Kelly Wolf, Stephen Macht, and Brad Dourif. Paramount unleashed it on October 26, 1990.
